It’s that time of year again for the crazy ComFest, which is back in Goodale Park from June 24-26, 2022 and celebrating 50 years!
Comfest is a volunteer-run Community Festival held in Goodale Park featuring several stages of local music, activism, arts, crafts, food and drink vendors.
Check the website to see when full details are announced.
They always need volunteers for many different areas, so if you are interested in doing a short shift (usually 4 hours), sign up on the website.
Tips for attending Comfest
Support this community-driven festival by showing up and being a part of it all. Parking is a pain, so if you can, UBER, carpool, ride your bike or take the COTA.
Say it again for the people in the back – parking is a pain down here! Towing is strictly enforced in the area, so avoid permitted parking. If you plan to drive, you should carpool and expect to park in the Arena District and walk.
If you’ve never been to Comfest before…be aware that everything goes. No shirt, no shoes, no problem – so you also want to consider this if you’re bringing your kids and if that would concern you (it shouldn’t though!). It is legal for all genders to be topless in the city of Columbus.
The music performances are great and the beer lines are sometimes long. The people watching is FANTASTIC.
Coolers and bags are searched (its illegal to BYOB to city parks). Bring blankets and chairs, and an open mind because when it says community, it really means ALL community. That’s the best part about this festival!
